Friday, February 18, My home by: Jose Rizal I had nine sisters and one brother. My father,a model of fathers,had given us an education in proportion to our modest means. By dint of frugality,he was able to build a stone house,to buy another,and to raise a small nipa hut in the midst of a grove we had,under the shede of banana and other trees.

Forst indigenous Syn callifolium Blume, Antrophyum ponapense. Lina Lawrence and Elizabeth Augustine noted that the word with the "w" refers to a deeper form of Santol fruit essay basket, a kiam, not the fern, spring Kyodai shida Miki Fritz spring Reproductive cycle of Selaginella The reproductive cycle of selaginella is shown the illustration below.
At the top mature selaginella produces cones. The cones produce two types of spores, one larger than the other. The smaller spore releases swimming sperm, the larger spore contains eggs.
Fertilized eggs develop into mature selaginella. The spores carry easily in the wind, allowing selaginella to colonize new territory far from the original plant. Selaginella life cycle Illustration 5: Fern morphology from student presentations Chapter 3 Plants that heal us Why are plants medicinal?
One hypothesis as to why plants produce medically active chemical compounds centers on the fact that "plants cannot run.
They must defend themselves against being eaten by other means. Powerful chemical compounds that affect animals are thought to be one way in which plants defend themselves. If an animal is poisoned or disabled by a chemical compound in a plant, then maybe the animal will be unable to finish eating that plant.
Those same chemical compounds may in more limited quantities be medicinal. Flowering plants angiosperms in particular have developed diverse and unique molecular defenses against herbivores — animals that eat plants Sumner, Another hypothesis notes that plants are attacked by viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
Plants have to defend themselves against these attackers, but lack a complex immune system such as animals have.
Plants have developed a chemical arsenal to kill off attacking viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Some of those same compounds work for animals including humans in fighting off the same microbes.
A third theory is applied to some plants. Some plants appear to attract animals intentionally. The plant offers up a relatively expendable part of the plant, in exchange the animals behavior patterns are beneficial to the plant.
There is a grass in Africa preferred by elephants. The elephants eat the blades, but never damage the underground portions of the grass. The elephants trample other forms of vegetation that would eventually shade the grass to death.
The elephants even intentionally uproot and kill inedible bushes that would shade out their favorite grass. Who is benefiting here? Both the grass and the elephant. The elephant gets fed, the grass gets rid of its competition on the savanna plains of Africa Attenborough, In this theory plants which produced chemical compounds that benefit their benefactor - the animal that is protecting the plant - would be more likely to survive.
Why study indigenous peoples and their medicinal use of plants? Indigenous peoples are those descendants of the original inhabitants of a location.
Non-indigenous people are those who are not ancient inhabitants of a place. Usually only the indigenous people will know the local plants and their uses. The non-indigenes will likely use commercially prepared products, often based on the plants of their ancient home.In her essay, “The Good Life,” she wrote about a table centerpiece which was gifted to an important person by friends.
if done at all. One of the artisans, Luz Ocampo of Bulacan, died last year. She used to do what is called bordado, fruit carving done mainly on dayap, santol and suha.
I have always maintained that bordado is far. Avocados are the fruit from Persea americana, an evergreen tree that can grow up to 65 feet. Avocados vary in weight from 8 ounces to 3 lbs. ( grams to kilograms), depending upon the variety.
Contextual translation of "santol fruit" into English. Human translations with examples: fruit, santol, scrutom, dry fruit, cottonfruit, chico fruit, coton fruit. The above simbang gabi fare in the Tagalog provinces is echoed by the other rice cakes and dishes in other regions at Christmastime.
It is asif our forebears, dependent on rice as staple and base and year-round pampabigat sa tiyan, gratefully gave it primacy of place in the celebration of native Christmas. The fruit is still called, as to this day, bayabas.
And although the guava may have came from the rude, selfish King Barabas, guava fruit is one of the fruits that offers many health benefits when consumed, the fruit is a good source of vitamin C. In Thai cuisine this fruit is used to make som tam when still not fully ripe and it is also one of the main ingredients in the santol and pork and santol and prawn Thai curries.
The wood of the tree is useful for construction, being plentiful and usually easy to work and it makes a good shade tree.
